Hogar Brotes del Olivo

The Hogar Brotes del Olivo was created in an initiative of a group of neighbors of the community of Tibás, who in 1984 in coordination with PANI (National Children Patronage) professionals assumed the project as a work of a social community.

It opens doors on May 8, 1988, constituting a temporary resource location for those children, who “by risk situations such as neglect, abandonment, abuse or death of a parent, should be separated from their biological family.

The home houses ten children between 0 and five years and aims to give individual attention to facilitate their development as ordinary people. 50% of their financing comes from PANI and others must cover it with donations or activities organized to raise funds.

There are three ladies responsible for the care of children, a psychologist, and director. For the particularity of the ages of the children, they have many needs for personal care.
